This book is a study of proconsulship, a form of delegated political-military leadership historically associated with the governance of large empires. Opening with a conceptual and historical analysis of proconsulship as an aspect of imperial or quasi-imperial rule generally, it surveys its origins and development in the late Roman Republic and its manifestations in the British Empire. The main focus is proconsulship in American history. Beginning with the occupation of Cuba and the Philippines after the Spanish-American War, it discusses the role of General Douglas MacArthur in East Asia during and after World War II, the occupation of Germany (focusing on General Lucius Clay), and proconsular leadership during the Vietnam War and the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan at the turn of the twenty-first century. An additional chapter provides an overview and assessment of the evolution of American political-military command and control and decision making after the end of the Cold War.

Book Description:

Proconsuls were generals who exercised extraordinary powers of command in the wars that led to Rome's rise as an imperial power in the ancient Mediterranean world. Today, there has been much talk of the United States as an imperial power, and the increasingly prominent role in our recent wars of proconsular-style officials such as Ambassador L. Paul Bremer and General David Petraeus. This study is the first systematic analysis of American proconsular leadership from the Spanish-American War to the present as well as its antecedents in Rome and imperial Britain.
